MoistureShield® Solid CoreTM Composite Railing Wins 2023 Golden Hammer Award

MoistureShield Railing

Solid CoreTM Composite Railing by MoistureShield®, a signature brand at Oldcastle® APG, was selected as a 2023 Golden Hammer Award Winner by HBSDealer. The contest recognizes the best new products in the home improvement industry. Products were judged on innovation, value and shelf appeal.

“The style built into MoistureShield Solid Core Railing jumped off the nomination form, scoring big points in ‘shelf appeal,’ one of the criteria of the judges,” said Ken Clark, Editor in Chief of HBSDealer. “The innovative material also scores points, providing value and durability.”

Made in the United States, MoistureShield’s Solid Core Composite Railing includes three distinct series — the TraverseTM, DiscoveryTM and NavigatorTM — featuring multiple top rail styles, infill options and color choices. The product is designed to not rot, splinter, warp or stain; is code compliant for safety; and includes a Transferable Limited Lifetime Warranty.

“We created our Solid Core Composite Railing with unmatched durability and moisture resistance for years of beauty and performance, much like our proven composite decking,” said Matthew Bruce, Vice President of Sales at MoistureShield. “We are grateful to HBSDealer for recognizing the quality and innovation of our railing products and are honored to be awarded the iconic Golden Hammer Award.”
